Key Strengths
· This is one tough hybrid! Great fit for all soil types and management systems. First one out of the ground. Handles drought very well. Fast drydown. Consistently good performance.
Weaknesses
· Average test weight. Good but not great Goss’s wilt tolerance.
Positioning
· This hybrid can literally go anywhere you want to plant corn and do well. I’d be cautious of the very high Goss’s pressure fields just to be on the safe side. H5044 responds very well to in-furrow microbial products (like Alpha Complete), insecticide, and fertility.

I was amazed by how fast this Hefty Brand seed pops up out of the ground!

Kim, Northwest Minnesota

I was tired of using Pioneer and thought I would try some Hefty Corn. Hefty was out of the ground faster and grew taller than my Pioneer Corn.

Josh, Bisbee, ND

I am pleased with how great my corn has been and can always count on the people at Hefty for great advice.

I really like the emergence and standability on Hefty Corn. Hefty is always a top-yielding corn on our farm.
